The coroner’s office is investigating after a body was recovered from the west arm of Lake Nipissing on the weekend.
The Ontario Provincial Police Marine Unit and Nipissing West OPP were dispatched to an abandoned boat in the St. Charles area of the lake just before 9:30 am on Oct. 8.
Police say the boat was powered up without the operator and the marine unit was unable to find anyone.
A body was then located and retrieved from the water by the OPP Underwater Search and Recovery Unit.
The deceased is identified as 37-year-old Chris Jackson of Sudbury.
